I can’t believe Michael Kay said, during last night’s Yankees-Orioles broadcast on YES, that the Yankees’ offer to fans to exchange last night’s tickets for freebies in 2012 was a “grand gesture.”
It’s utterly insulting to tell paying fans they’re getting some sort of kind-hearted gift when the option was to sit in the rain till 2:15 a.m. for a game that started four hours late and was played in miserable conditions throughout. Kay is usually much more aware of the common fan.
I was startled awake last night at 2:30 am by my phone alerting me the Yankees score had gone final. I actually mumbled “You gotta be fucking kidding me…”
